For those managing a band, booking performance venues can be a tedious process. Musicians and band managers spend countless hours online researching possible venues and sending out email messages, often only hearing back from a limited number of respondents. Book My Band is a new time saving Android app that streamlines the booking process by letting users send template based email messages to multiple venues for a specific date, all from the convenience of their phone.
“I created this app to make the booking process simpler for bands. Now they can focus their time on creating music, instead of spending hours in front of the computer screen,” said Matt Roth, the creator of Book My Band. “Book My Band streamlines the messaging process with just a few simple steps. It’s not uncommon for bands to send dozens of email messages to venues attempting to book a show. Most of these venues will never respond, but once in a while they will get lucky with a response and time slot.”
Book My Band gives users access to a database of every live music venue in the United States. Once the performing artist has filled in the template, the app will auto-fill email messages to the venues they have selected, sending multiple booking requests at once.
Those who download the Book My Band App will find the following features:
- Database of every live music venue in the U.S. including website, phone number and address information
- Ability to search for venues by city, state or zip code
- Using the search results users can simply click which venues they would like to perform at and request specific dates to perform.
- Auto-fill email function makes it possible to send multiple booking requests at once.
- Email template can be saved for use again in the future.
- Email messages are auto-filled with each checked venue’s contact information.
- Integrates with Gmail and Yahoo email accounts.
“The Book My Band app is ideal for bands that need the services of a booking agent, but are unable to afford the cost,” said Roth. “Bands can use it to plan tour dates months in advance or even to help fill-in a date for a last minute cancellation.”
The Book My Band App is available in a free or upgraded version for $1.99. It can be found in the Google Play App Store at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cnc.org.bookmyband.free&hl=en.
